2. Hills – How to enjoy hills, run with less effort and use less leg power

3. New Ideas – New and easier ways of explaining the 4 basic steps in Chi Running with use of new imagery and ideas that make it simpler to understand and practice on the run.

Chi Running Success Stories

“Just a quick line to thank you for Chi Running Workshop. I went out this eve for an “easy” recovery run with my posture in mind only to find at 5k I was seconds off my pb without too much effort! I can’t believe it! Thanks so much, Mo Farah better watch out!”

“I did the Forget the Gym Chi Running workshop with Mary in and, although it’s only a couple of weeks on, it has changed my running life! I’ve been suffering from plantar fasciitis, a lot in one foot, a little in the other, for the last few months. There’s been some improvement from physio, dry needling etc – but I think I may have finally found my cure.
Chi Running is all about making running easier and less stressful on your body, so you can avoid injury and keep running all through your life. The practical, easy-to-follow advice on warming up, maintaining good posture, correct stride length, head position and lots more has improved my running, made it much easier, and, most importantly for me, silenced my feet. And the mindful mindlessness of running with a metronome is curiously restful, engaging my brain in just the right way as I move along. The workshop has very little actual running in it, it was mostly talking, instruction, visualization, and drills. It was a fun, informative couple of hours on the beach with friendly like-minded people and a great teacher in Mary. I can’t recommend it highly enough!
“My sister and I attended your running Chi workshop in Wexford on Thursday. Finished our first half marathon today in Phoenix Park! Just mailing to say a massive thank you to you. During the race we used a lot of the techniques you taught us – particularly wearing the bikini and the arm techniques. Running up hills using the “eating sweets” technique was just brilliant and we actually did embrace the hills! Huge thanks as your techniques definitely helped us shave some time off and we both felt great the whole way through and really enjoyed the run!”
